Abstract:Eight systemic insecticides were evaluated as foliar or soil treatments for control of larvae of the cabbage looper, Trichoplusia ni (Hübner); imported cabbageworm, Pieris rapae (L.); and diamondback moth, Plutella maculipennis (Curtis) on cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli. Soil applications of NIA-10242 (2,3-dihydro-2,2-dimethyl-7-benzofuranyl methylcarbamate) at 1 or 2 lb per acre provided highly effective control of imported cabbageworms and diamondback moth larvae for several weeks, but were weeks. Soil applications of Amer. Cyan. 47031 (cyclic ethylene (diethoxyphosphinyl) dithioimidocarbonate)) at 1 lb per acre were effective for several weeks against cabbage loopers but did not provide adequate control of imported cabbageworms. Both soil and foliar applications of NIA- 10242 and Amer. Cyan. 47031 controlled cabbage loopers as effectively as a standard DDT + toxaphene spray.
